Sugar Creek - near Turin, NY

Postby frozentime » Tue Aug 03, 2010 12:13 pm

I had a chance to make a quick stop out to Sugar Creek to look over the falls there.

It's located on Rt 12D between Turin and Boonville.

Google Maps:,-75.364645&sspn=0.009784,0.024097&gl=us&hl=en&ie=UTF8&geocode=FSdXmAId4ACC-w&split=0

It can be seen from the road, or you can drive right down in it - and I mean in it. There are a few dirt roads the lead down to the edge or right down to the water. I would advise against trying it in a car, but my jeep had no problems. The place in not posted.

From Rt 12D:

Nice set of falls and photos!
